After a wave of killings of innocent black Americans across the country shocks their community, black residents in New Orleans organize to chart a path forward. A meditation on the state of race in America, this film is an intimate portrait into the lives of those who struggle for justice, dignity, and survival in a country not on their side. Director Roberto Minervini in attendance.

REVIEWS

“A reminder that history’s sprawling canvas is populated by lives that are desperately struggling to live and make the world around them better for those who come after.” – Daniel Kasman, MUBI

“The US-Italian documentarist’s immersive, poetic, hyperrealist portraits from America’s underbelly offer his characters a frank stage to show themselves.” – Wendy Ide, Sight and Sound
